Tool Chest

I’m working out of a double garage and need all the floor space I can get. So I decided to put as many tools on the wall as possible. I also needed a large project for my final in my veneering class so this is a birch ply box with fiddleback maple and palan wood veneers on the doors. It’s about 32×48 inches. I hope it holds all my hand tools, at least.

Very nice. I like the contrast between the different woods. I hope you get a good grade for this final project.

Thanx, guys. I just got it up on the wall and now I have to take it down and adjust the cleats. Along with taking out the bench that was under it that we broke putting the chest up! :D Anyway, I’ll show off the inside when all the tools are installed, the bench is gone and my shop is a lot easier to move around in. Good thing I’m retiring . . .
